            AP'S 50TH ANNIVERSARY: CALL TO STUDENTS

     http://mathforum.org/kb/thread.jspa?threadID=1167484

  Time is short but if you are in contact with any of your
  former students whose lives were influenced by the Advanced
  Placement Program, consider having them read the post on
  the ap-calculus discussion or the ap-stat discussion and
  contact Peter McCormick to tell their story.

     http://mathforum.org/kb/thread.jspa?threadID=1167603

  "Veronica Chambers is compiling accounts from former
  students whose lives were influenced by the Advanced
  Placement Program. Her article will appear in the fall issue
  of The College Board Review, which will commemorate the
  fiftieth anniversary of AP."

  The deadline is Tuesday, July 12.
